image005For the past 15 years, those in search of white-washed sand and mesmerising turquoise waters have chosen the boutique island-resort, Angsana Ihuru in the Maldives.  With thatched villas fringed by swaying palms set along a pristine beachfront; a marine-rich reef just a stone’s throw from the shore; an outstanding spa; and unforgettable destination dining experiences, this picture-perfect resort continues to offer a castaway-chic experience for blissed out-couples.

  1. Leading The Way
    Opening in 2000, Angsana Ihuru was the first Angsana resort to launch in the Indian Ocean
  2. Best Things come in Small Packages
    At just 2.2 hectares (or approximately three football fields); Angsana Ihuru is one of the smallest resorts in the Maldives, allowing guests to stroll around the island in a few minutes.  Totally removed from the real world, this tiny verdant gem is a chic resort for those looking to completely escape
  3. Easily Accessible
    The island is just a 20 minute speedboat ride from the international airport in Malé, meaning weary travellers can find themselves on the beach before they know it
  4. Unparalleled Underwater Life
    Home to more than 150 species of fish, as well as turtles, rays, sharks, a kaleidoscope of corals and the resort’s famed Rannamaari shipwreck, Angsana Ihuru’s house reef is considered to be the best in the Maldives.  Scientific surveys of the reef and fish community at 19 sites in NorthMalé, in conjunction with the Wildlife Conservation, found that Angsana Ihuru had the highest diversity of fish species in the area
  5. Marine Conservation
    With the first Marine Laboratory funded by a resort in the Maldives on the island, Angsana Ihuru is dedicated to protecting its pristine marine life.  Guests can play a part by attending marine biology sessions, exploring the coral reefs on a guided snorkeling safari or assisting with the resort’s turtle programme
  6. Wedded Bliss
    Since 2000, Angsana Ihuru has hosted an average of 25 weddings each year, including several underwater weddings.  Whether couples choose to wed on an idyllic, remote island nearby; or during a sunset ceremony on the beach, every detail is catered for by the resort’s dedicated wedding planner
  7. Home-Away-From-Home
    Approximately 21% of guests return to their special ‘second home’ of Angsana Ihuru every year, welcomed back like family by the resort’s long-standing staff
  8. Tropical Sundowners
    The signature cocktail at Angsana Ihuru is the refreshing Ihuru Breeze.  A punchy blend of tropical fruit, it’s best enjoyed overlooking the shimmering lagoon at Velaavani bar, as the sun dips below the horizon
  9. Dedicated Staff
    Angsana Ihuru prides itself on its passionate staff, all of which offer exceptional service.  Several associates have been with the resort since it opened, including Mohamed Jihad (Rooms Division Manager), Ibrahim Zahl (Executive Sous Chef), Mohamaed Shameem (Assistant Manager Engineering), Ahmed Rasheed (Sous Chef) and Abdullah Shakeed (Executive Housekeeper)
  10. Star Appeal
    Angsana Ihuru has attracted an array of celebrities and personalities over the years, including Spanish Formula One racing driver, Fernando Alonso
  11. Green Credentials
    Blessed with a stunning yet fragile environment, Angsana Ihuru recognises the importance of conservation.  It was the first site in the world to aid coral re-growth with a man-made barnacle steel structure; the island is a safe harbour for seabirds; and the conservation team has released nearly 400 one year-old turtles back into the wild
  12. Multicultural Visitors
    Over the years, Angsana Ihuru has welcomed guests from every corner of the world including China, UK, Australia, Russia; and even guests from Alaska who travelled over 7,000 miles in search of warmer climes
  13. Dining with a Difference
    From a lavish lobster barbeque on the beach, canapés and champagne on a sunset cruise, a sumptuous three-course dinner on a secluded sandbank or an intimate dinner in the privacy of a villa, Angsana Ihuru’s talented team of chefs and villa hosts are on hand to create unforgettable dining experiences
  14. Relax & Rejuvenate
    Angsana Spa Ihuru’s signature treatment, the Sun Balm, is perfect after an exciting whirl of sun-soaked activities.  Sun-kissed skin will be soothed with a 60-minute cucumber body conditioner followed by a 60 minute facial to keep skin silky-smooth and hydrated
  15. Awards & Accolades
    Since opening in 2000, Angsana Ihuru has won 58 awards and accolades around the world for its spa, conservation efforts, service, romance and all-round offering.  Highlights in the trophy cabinet include 19 Trip Advisor awards and several inclusions in Conde Nast magazine’s prestigious Gold List as well as a plethora of awards for its spa
